I've played #1 a few times now and it doesn't disappoint. As others have said it is a fair course. It is not long at 6100 yards but you can't just rip driver every hole. There are a few blind shots from tees and #12 is a true test of a par 3. The course conditions have always been outstanding. It is Pinehurst so you get the hospitality, the practice facility, the clubhouse with all the history and the Deuce Grill is delicious food. I think it is worth your time to play the original at Pinehurst if you are in the area.

Played #1 with my 10 year old son. With the junior rate our total fee with cart was $165.00. Course was in perfect condition. The course is not tricked up and every shot is fair. The greens are challenging but two putts are the norm. Playing from the white tees my little guy had a blast. Everyone treated my son as a valued guest and made him feel that he was a member. (me too!) To date, it was the most fun and best experience we have had on a golf course together. We were both impressed by the staff, the clubhouse, the practice facility, and the course itself. The entire day gave us a father/son experience that we will always cherish.

Pinehurst #1 was first opened in 1898. Yep, it's almost 120 years old - just a few years younger than Chicago Golf Club, argued to be the oldest 18-hole course in the United States.

#1 is generally straightforward and just 6,100 yeards from the tips, but it's a fun course to play. Lots of room off the tee, but there are several holes where driver doesn't make sense. Greens aren't tricked up, but they can be tricky to read. Par 3's are pretty solid, especially #12.

#1 is a nice way to experience Pinehurst without the investment and challenge of #2. Same clubhouse, same practice facility, same friendly people. Definitely a good choice for a first round on property or as a second, casual round on a 36-hole day.

I was very happy and impressed with the course conditions. Great course to play.<br/> I play #5 last year and was not impressed at all, but #1 is 10 times better.<br/> Play hole 18 with the Pinehurst facility in the background makes awesome photos.

Very nice classic course. Holes are varied, play was never boring. The price is high, but you get more than just a round of golf. The practice facility and clubhouse are first class and the amount of history is awesome. If you are a short hitter this is a good way to experience Pinehurst.
